We are still working on getting the site back up...but one option we are exploring is trying to get the leaderboard info and posting in a thread for the mean time...

Below are the official 2017 Rules and scoring Points Per Inch for each species:

2017 NCKA Diver Of The Year (DOTY) Rules

DOTY is meant to be fun and encourage safe and enjoyable diving practices. It is however, a skill based, individual competition, and an excellent tool to help hone your hunting abilities.

1. All entries (fish/abalone/scallops) must be taken while freediving without any assistance from another diver. Assistance is defined as: Finding, marking the hole, luring, chumming or directing another diver to a fish or abalone. No other diver can load the gun, make a back-up shot, touch spear or iron or assist in the landing of fish or abalone. You may alert another diver to the possible presence of a fish in a general area, but not a specific area such as; next to my gun, at the end of my float line, right underneath me, in a hole under that big rock, etc.

2. Chumming is not permitted.

3. Diving can be from shore or from kayak or dive board. No motorized vessels or mothershipping or SCUBA.

4. Photographic evidence of fish/abalone (total length) against a measuring device must be provided. All entries must be rounded down to the nearest quarter inch. Pictures are required to show the MOUTH CLOSED of the fish on a Hawg Trough or similar measuring board. No lip grippers or game clips or stringers can be in the mouth when picture is taken. You are not allowed to stretch or pull the lips to gain extra length. This is in accordance with DFG measuring standards. Multiple pics can be submitted to show mouth closed and touching end of trough (if need be due to rigor mortis making squeezing mouth shut necessary). Any entries not in compliance will be subject to DQ of entry at discretion of DOTY committee. Pictures of fish need to be taken BEFORE scaling/gutting etc. for both ID and accuracy of measurement purposes.

Only pictures that show the ENTIRE fish will be used in judging submissions. Missing portions of the head or tail in the photograph may result in a disqualification of the submission.  “Tail only” shots may be used to clarify full length pictures, but will not be used as the sole factor in determining length.  Committee recommends competitors take pictures of fish from “straight up”, as this assists committee in determining the accurate length of the fish.

5. Abalone and scallops can be measured with ab gauge/calipers/hawgtrough and knife (see pics for examples). Both shells must be visible in at least one picture if not still joined together. Rocks, old shells etc not included in measurement.
 
Measurements of abalone and scallops will be rounded down to the nearest quarter inch.
 
Keep your PB shell. In event of tie at end of year, shells will be calipered as a tie breaker.

6. The pool is open to NCKA members only and runs from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017. Fish/abalone taken prior to payment of entry fees and joining NCKA are ineligible. Prospective participants can join NCKA at anytime and then once their fees are paid they are eligible to compete.

7. Payment of DOTY fees makes the participant eligible to participate in AOTY and vice versa.

8. Sharing of reports and pics with the NCKA community is STRONGLY encouraged. Not asking or encouraging people to share secret spots, just encouraging people to share their stories and adventures and reports with the larger group. Reports and pics are fun!!

9. All fish/abalone/scallops entered must be taken in the ocean south of the California/Oregon border and north of the southern border of Monterey County.

 10. The pool covers the following categories: Lingcod, Cabezon, Greenling, Blue Rockfish, Black RockFish, Gopher Rockfish/Black&Yellow Rockfish/China RockFish, Kelp Rockfish, Grass RockFish, Copper RockFish, Vermillion RockFish, Olive RockFish, MonkeyFace Prickleback, Halibut (California and Pacific), Perch (all kinds), Sheepshead, White SeaBass, Red Abalone, Rock Scallops, Striped Bass (from Ocean only).

11. The biggest fish from each diver's top fifteen species will be used towards the diver's total points.

12. Entries must be posted within 2 weeks of being taken and photographed. No "hoarding" of entries.

13. ALL DFG rules must be followed 100%. Period. Any breaking of any DFG rules will result in the entry being disqualified and public ridicule.

14. If you don't like the rules and don't want to play, don't! Diving is fun, and this is meant to be fun between friends as well. We all have bigger and better things to argue/stress/worry about.

15. AOTY is DIFFERENT than DOTY. Hook and line fishing is DIFFERENT than freediving/spearfishing. The rules for both contests are DIFFERENT. Discussion of rules is encouraged, and will be considered and evaluated for use in future year DOTYs. NO CHANGES to rules will take place for 2017 DOTY.

16. DOTY committee members have final say over any and all issues/arguments/controversies.

Scoring Scale

WSB 4.5
Olive 9
Vermillion 9
Halibut 5
Lingcod 5
Copper 10
Black 9.5
Gopher/B&Y/China 14
MFE 6.75

Kelp 12.5
Perch 11
Cabezon 8
Grass 10
Abalone 19

You don't have to post up yet if you don't want to Antonio...I just wanted to give people an option to share pics and see what species they still need to get, and upgrade etc.

When actual DOTY site is back up people will have a 2 week window to get all entries taken during the crash actually entered on the real site.

Hope that makes sense...

 :smt006

Sincerely,

Jim

Thanks for the extra work you are putting in during this down time  :smt007

Thanks for setting up the temporary leaderboard Jim! I can't remember exactly how many of these are upgrades/new species so I will just post them all (fish pics to follow). Also, yesterday I got a PR 22.5 inch black rockfish. Stoked!

Any tips for uploading photos? Is there a max file size? Trying to upload fish photos that are about 2 MB and getting turned down by the server...
